Unless she was already 'in the fold', trying to impress a girl with Yellow Submarine wasn't the best thing you could do.

 

Not to insult the fairer sex, but if you're looking to woo a lady, stick with something fairly lowbrow to start.  There's a reason those Nickelback shows are stuffed with hot chicks.  All style, zero substance.

Again…  This is a broad generalization.  Not a generalization about broads.  There seem to be some very smart ladies who reside within this forum.

And how do you know unknown isn't of the fairer sex, as I myself am? You know, it's not just being a girl that makes Yellow Submarine hard to get into. It's a loooooong ass movie with not much of a point. I'd love to say I love it, but being a girl, I probably just don't really get it. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Sorry for getting you so upset, Sun King. I don't try to turn my friends or other people onto The Beatles. I agree with you that it's stupid to try and force that on people. I can't stand it when all people talk about is some famous band or person I don't care about, which is why I don't do that to other people. That friend is a Beatles fan, and not by my doing either. I didn't say she hated the movie and was telling me to turn it off the whole time, I said she wasn't impressed with it, and there is a difference. I guess I guess I might have used the wrong word when I said I "made" her watch it with me, because she actually wanted to (maybe not as much as I did, but still). I really didn't mean to upset anybody there, so I'm sorry. You could probably calm down a little, too.

You didn't do anything wrong, so don't apologize. That post was a little bit harsh…I mean, it's only natural to talk to people about what you love. I catch myself doing it all the time.

Thanks, Kedame. I know an apology wasn't needed, I was kind of being flippant when I did.

I don't think a person's Beatles fandom (or lack thereof) should *necessarily* be a factor in their appreciation of "Yellow Submarine". After all, back in '64, middle-aged (and older) movie critics who couldn't stand the Beatles, all fell all over themselves to praise "Hard Day's Night". And "YS" is practically a must-see for animation fans.

Unknown – that stopped being about you specifically at some loint during that post, and became a rant I've never had the energy to type out. It drives me crazy when people force (as apparently wasn't the case with you) people to do things they have no interest in doing because person 1 is in love with the Beatles. I have 5 friends who are in absolute love with One Direction. If they forced me to watch YouTube clips of their interviews and their songs, I'd be very mad. But yet, when it's the Beatles, and we're forcing our friends to watch the Beatles' movies, it's okay. Why is that? Because it's the Beatles, people can justify it. If they are fellow fans, then this doesn't apply. But if you're forcing good friends who can't stand the Beatles to watch any of the movies – do you think it'll help any? It probably won't.

(Again, Unknown, this post has nothing to do with you.)

I'll jump in and apologize for my assumptions that everyone here is male.

 

Coming from a few other male-dominated forums and seeing how most user names are ambiguous and their avatars are of Beatles, my mind just slipped into that way of thinking.

There should be some sort of a way to distinguish males and females on here otherwise the conversation can sometimes get a bit tricky…

Well, we could avoid making sexist comments altogether…

Would have thought not making sexist comments was a given on any forum.

Eek!  Then you haven't been on too many forums lately.

 

I like this place for its civility.

One part I've noticed that's different on both this new Blu-ray edition and the previous '99 DVD edition from the version I watched in my youth that had been recorded off a local TV channel when it had been on in the wee hours one night (apart from the inclusion of the "Hey Bulldog" segment): as The Beatles are releasing Sgt. Pepper's LHCB from their 'meanie bubble,' "Baby, You're a Rich Man" begins to play on the soundtrack and as the bubble is deflating the song continues to play.  Then when the lyric starts, the group starts singing until stopping after roughly the first verse and resuming the action.  However, in the DVD and Blu-ray version, once the bubble starts deflating, the soundtrack goes to silence and then cuts straight to the action from where the group had stopped singing.  I'm assuming this scene was going to be segment in which "Baby" appeared since it was initially going to be one of the 4 exclusive Beatle songs for the movie's soundtrack but work was then stopped on the scene when the group yanked it from their submission list and put it on the B-side of "All You Need Is Love" instead (which led them to have to eventually include "Hey Bulldog").  Anyone know why this would've appeared in one version of the film but not the other?  ahdn_george_01
